Just be like me. Get a Huawei where the webcam is hidden in the keyboard and the spyware is already installed so they can record all of your traffic and passwords.

Grabbed the Matebook X Pro on release. Personally, I love it. Solid enough battery life, MX150 for light gaming and 16GB RAM so I have enough for 1-2 VMs. For the price, it was the best size-performance at the time.

On some, yes, but at least one is quite convincing.

The funny part is, I've seen the fakes perform just as good, only difference was battery life. Will it last as long or maintain that precision as well, probably not, but for the price it's not much of an issue.
